We're guessing Marky Mark is feeling those good vibrations right about now because that dude is on top of the movie-making world!

The gritty new war film he stars in, Lone Survivor, just enjoyed a $38.5 million dollar opening weekend and easily dominated its box office competition!

Not only did Peter Berg's critically acclaimed flick oust Disney's Frozen from the top spot, but it straight-up OBLITERATED two other big name films that also opened this weekend.

In fact, it nearly TRIPLED the combined total grosses of Joaquin Phoenix's Her ($5.4 mil) and Julia Roberts' August: Osage County ($7.3 mil)!!

Wowzers!!! Way to go, Mark Wahlberg!!!

Universal projected good numbers for this retelling of an actual navy SEAL mission gone horribly wrong, but they never expected to make this much dough! Apparently $38.5 mil is the most a new movie ever made on this weekend, historically speaking, and the second highest film opening to ever happen in a January!

Lone Survivor also stars Eric Bana, Taylor Kitsch andEmile Hirsch.

Congrats, boys! The military training and totally adorbzies beards really paid off!

    This Movie is Based on a True 'sad' happening, Mark plays the role of Luttrel the only SEAL Who survived Operation red wing 28-06-2005 the operation where LT Murphy and the rest of the Navy seal members got killed So it`s not just a Movie or Film of the year, Marcus Luttrel wrote a Book wich is now the movie, and the Docu Murph the Protector is also based on this operation
